The long duration of orthodontic treatment is a major deterrent for young and adult patients alike. This had led to researchers focusing on ways to shorten treatment time and the introduction of various treatment modalities. Among the highly invasive procedures are corticotomy with flap elevation. Microinvasive procedures include corticision, piezocision, alveocentesis, and laser facilitated corticotomy. Recently a noninvasive procedure AcceleDent system has been introduced. Apart from these, various drugs have also been successfully used since long but with no guaranteed safety. The aim of this article is to review the various options available to speed up the orthodontic tooth movement.
